Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Foundersí robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. Itís a lover, not a fighter.

Poured from bottle. Pours a rich dark brown with tan head, but it dissipates quickly. Chocolate, fairly strong coffee notes, but smooth and a very pleasant finish. This is good, but just not quite as good as Fullerís London Porter.

12 ounces bottle from Craft Beer Cabin shared with brother. Aroma: ashes, smokey, chocolate and caramel aroma. App: moderate dark burgundy, minimal brown head, no lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, light medium sweetness, light medium ashes and bitter finish. Overall: not a big fan of ashes. This one is really focused on it. For the price point this is really a great deal but unfortunately after awesome beers like I just had it just feels OK. I sure wouldnít mind drinking this winter.

Well, no matter how much porters you drink, and how many times you thought that some porter is absolutely incredible, when you try this beer again, itís still the best. Well, when i tried it, I thought itís the same feeling like when i tried my first beer in life. Absolute happiness and magic. Probably the best porter ever. Incredible structure, hints of alcohol, but in a great way. Roasted malts, caramel, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit (or something like plum). Itís not to sweet, itís not to bitter, itís perfect balanced. Love it!

So unbelievably good. Rich, smooth, with a deep vein of coffee and chocolate malts followed by a bitter but reconcilable fade. Iíve raved about this beer on so many different forums and sites I no longer know how to expound its glory without sounding insane. Worth the funny looks from people unnerved by my exuberance. Beer at its apex. Comfort in a bottle. Proof that inner peace is attainable.

Pours a dark brown with minimal head. Nose of chocolate. Taste is black licorice, with some dark chocolate. Velvety mouthfeel. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Porters are not usually my thing, but this is simply a delicious example of the style. Love the chocolate notes and it just slips down so easily. Best black beer Iíve had.
